They're meeting their teachers and finding out who's in their classes, and we know you'll be taking photos. When you do, send them our way!

Post them to our page or tag us in your own posts on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn, or send them by text or email to staff members.

With your permission, we'll share them on social media and in our marketing, but mostly we just want to see their smiling faces because we're almost as proud of them as you are!

Join us in welcoming our newest Board Member, Barbara Meloni, pictured here (center) with her children Witt Meloni, Ceil Meloni Folk, and Abby Meloni, and her husband Gary.

“I’m very passionate about education, so when a friend and donor to M.O.S.T. told me about the organization, I was eager to learn more. Gary and I learned a great deal from our involvement with the Jubilee schools of Memphis. Since their closing, we have been looking for an education-adjacent cause that we could support.

“Something that stood out to me with M.O.S.T. is that parents of our scholarship students have skin in the game. That’s an important piece for me because I think if the parents actively support the child in education, the kids will be more successful.”

The opportunities opened by M.O.S.T. Scholarships position graduates to succeed in their careers, but the ripple effect is bigger than that.

In the tightest circle around the student, families are lifted up. But as it spreads, small businesses pop up on community streets, new clinics open their doors to serve local patients, sharp young lawmakers and activists start fighting for their neighbors in City Hall.

With almost 4,000 alumni, dozens of careers are represented by our former students, and many have chosen to stay in memphis to contribute to our city’s economy and culture in different ways.

"Last year, M.O.S.T. scholarships opened doors to education for almost 400 students in the Mid-South with more than $1 million in funding, but I know we can smash records as we grow. If you’re reading this, you may already be part of our support team, and I am grateful.

"This summer, we're focused on working to offer these same opportunities for what I hope will be a growing community of M.O.S.T. Scholarship families. As more supporters learn about the real change we are making in people's lives, the more our potential to make a bigger impact grows." - Abbey Cowens, Exceutive Director

We hope everyone made it through Tuesday’s storm with minimal or no damage. One M.O.S.T. staff member was hit, but nothing that can’t be fixed and everyone is OK. And, as always in Memphis, neighbors pitched in when help was needed.

Thanks, Memphis Light, Gas & Water (MLGW) for getting the lights back on!

Memphis Opportunity Scholarship Trust (M.O.S.T.) is honored to announce receipt of a grant from The Canale Foundation. With these grant dollars going directly to fund M.O.S.T. Scholarships, the announcement means more students in the Mid-South will have access to education options that meet their unique needs.

“Our scholarships are over $3,000 per year and per student, on average. This generous grant from The Canale Foundation is huge for us and the families we partner with, translating directly to more scholarships for more students,” said M.O.S.T. executive director Abbey Cowens. “We’re a small non-profit and work very hard to make sure our efforts are as impactful as possible while our operations remain as efficient as possible. I see this grant from The Canale Foundation as a vote of confidence not only in what we do, but also in how we do it.”

Athletics and academics have a mutually beneficial relationship, working together to shape students as leaders and high achievers. With classes still about a month away from starting, many school teams are already holding tryouts and opening the season with practices.

M.O.S.T. staff’s kids play basketball, soccer, and volleyball, and compete in gymnastics. What about at your house?

The summer is great for growing a garden, and gardens are great for bringing a little science into the backyard. From seed to salad bowl, tending to edible plants can connect life-long learners to the lifecycle of flora and helps teach lessons about water stewardship, the changing seasons, and healthful eating.

M.O.S.T. staffers are growing tomatoes, okra, cucumbers, chilis, eggplants, herbs, and more this year. What’s in your garden?
